HP-UX and Solaris E1 Kernel Recommendations and Explanation


This solution is written for HP-UX and Solaris systems only. It is intended to be a reference of EnterpriseOne recommendations, based upon information given in the E1 Server and Workstation Administration Guide. Your values may be different based upon the specifications (Memory/CPU) of your system, and by the software requirements of other programs that are running on your system.

Important Notes:
  • Changes to these settings have the potential to impact your system, so only modify these values if you are getting resource errors in your E1 logs, or are seeing performance problems on your system.

  • Prior to making system-wide changes, we strongly recommend a full working backup of the existing configuration.

  • Please consult HP or SUN documentation for further questions or clarification on the information provided in this solution.  Ex: Oracle Technology Network for SUN documentation and HP's web site for relevant documentation.
  • The kernels for HP-UX and Solaris (prior to Solaris 10) servers include a long list of configurable parameters. These parameters control the quantity of various resources available within the HP-UX and Solaris kernels.
  • Beginning with Solaris 10, SUN made a major change in the way IPC parameters are handled. These parameters are no longer changed through the /etc/system file - some have been eliminated, and some must now be changed through the Solaris resource controls facility.
